About this mezcal
Origen Raiz Espadin Chacaleño is made with maguey Chacaleño (Agave angustifolia). According to Asis Cortes, who is one of the brand owners, the Consejo Regulador del Mezcal that certifies mezcal required the brand to add Espadin to the title of this release, but this name is not used at all locally. The local producers simply refer to this as maguey Chacaleño. While this is an Agave angustifolia, it varies a great deal from the maguey Espadin that you’d find in Oaxaca.
Origen Raiz del Espiritu Mezcal
Origen Raíz is a partnership between two distinct sets of Mexican roots. The Saravia family of Durango has a long history of working to improve the local economy through business, and the Cortés family of Oaxaca brings six generations of knowledge in mezcal production. The families were brought together by their sons, Asis Cortés and Bildo Saravia, through passion for their culture and respect for their heritage. Asis is well known for some of his other projects like Mezcal Dixeebe, and he was previously involved with his family’s other brands of Oaxacan-based mezcal: El Jolgorio, Nuestra Soledad, and Agave de Cortes. The family also operates a mezcaleria named Mezcalogia and Asis has a restaurant named Puro Burro in Oaxaca City.
